95th Academy Awards

We’ve come to the end of TÁR and Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio season. Congratulations to Cate Blanchett, Todd Field, Guillermo Del Toro, Mark Gustafson, and to the people involved in the making of these films. TÁR is still showing in select cinemas around the world, so if you can spare 2 hours and 38 minutes of your time watch one of 2022’s best films. This film is part of Vilnius International Film Festival in Lithuania with screening beginning on March 19th, more info here, and this will be released in Japan on May 12th. The film is also available on VOD in the US and UK. Del Toro’s Pinocchio is streaming on Netflix.

Last Sunday, the Academy Awards marked the end of 2022-23 awards season. TÁR was nominated in six categories: Best Picture, Best Actress in a Leading Role, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Editing, and Best Cinematography. Cate and Todd Field attended the ceremony as well the Vanity Fair Oscars after party.

Here are some of the accolades Cate received throughout TÁR promo – her second Volpi Cup for Best Actress from Venice Film Festival, she is the fourth actress to do so; the first actress to win the three major film critics awards (New York Film Critics Circle, Los Angeles Film Critics Association, National Society of Film Critics) for leading role; she won her fourth BAFTA, Golden Globes, and Critics Choice Awards; third London Film Critics’ Circle and AACTA International Awards; tributes from Telluride Film Festival (Silver Medallion), Palm Springs International Film Festival (Desert Palm Achievement Award), and Santa Barbara International Film Festival (Outstanding Performer of the Year).

TÁR won Best Picture at NYFCC, LAFCA, NSFC, LFCC. Todd Field won Best Director at LAFCA and LFCC. Cinematographer, Florian Hoffmeister won the Golden Frog from Camerimage.

Guillermo Del Toro’s Pinocchio won Best Animated Feature at the Academy Awards, BAFTA, Critics Choice, Golden Globes, Annie Awards, and LAFCA Awards.

The night before the Oscars, Cate Blanchett co-chaired Motion Picture Television Fund’s Night Before Fundraiser.

The Motion Picture & Television Fund mounted its annual “Night Before” party, and the 21st annual fundraiser was typically teeming with Oscar winners and nominees, filmmakers, executives and entertainment industry insiders. The results are cause for celebration as the event raised more than $4.5 million for a total of more than $100 million over the event’s history.

The event was co-chaired by 2023 Oscar nominees Angela Bassett and Cate Blanchett with George Clooney, Emma Thomas and Christopher Nolan, all of whom were in attendance Saturday night.

  1. It breaks my heart that she didn’t win her 3rd oscar. She absoulutely deserved it! It’s not fair. I assumed Academy wouldn’t give it to best movie and to Field for direction and screenplay (even though they also could!) but not giving it to CB is so painfully wrong.

    I’m an Asian, be able to watch Tar and Everything everywhere all at once.. honestly speaking Cate’s performance was out of space and beyond…How sad to witness the political issue over the true skills and performances which supposed to be the only purpose of this award..you are the best actor Cate Blanchett!

    I’m Asian too and I was rooting for Cate Blanchett. Her performance was just better and more technical.

  3. ‘If you can meet triumph and disaster and treat those two impostors just the same,’ Rudyard Kipling said. Yes, but this is so difficult…
    What a disappointment, what a huge disappointment it must be for Cate today. I sincerely share her regret that not only did the film not win any Oscar, but Cate didn’t win Best Actress either, although it was well deserved, regardless of Michelle Yeoh’s talent. I really feel sorry for her that she didn’t get this award, because on the one hand her performance in Tar is absolutely dazzling, and on the other hand she invested a lot of time and effort in this role, which must have required a lot of preparation. If I had one small piece of advice to give her, it would be not to lose faith in herself: she is in my eyes and in the eyes of thousands or more people around the world an exceptional actor, perhaps even the best of all time. Let this not discourage her in the pursuit of her career, which is far from over, which will bring her many other awards including the coveted one. As Cate said about Lydia Tar, she will now have to look for another peak to reach, another summit of virtuosity, which will perhaps be even more dazzling than this one. It will certainly allow her to turn the page on Tar, even if it is so painful. Let her remain herself, let her keep her self-confidence, even if we share her immense disappointment. She remains in the hearts of her fans an exceptional actor whose time we are lucky enough to live in. Congratulations to Cate for this great film and this great role, which required so much energy from her, which have not been appreciated at their fair value.

    1. I love Cate Blanchett, whatever she does is exceptional, one of the best actor in the world.

  4. At least the film and her performance will stand the test of time and that’s an accomplishment in and of itself.

    And . . . a big THANK YOU to all the people involved in the management of the site.

    You have tirelessly shared news, interviews, videos and photos regarding the promotion of TÁR and everything related to Cate Blanchett and we’re truly grateful.

    Now, get some rest if you can – everyone have deserved it 😉
